From Our Editors

Set against a statuesque cliff backdrop, St Andrews Aquarium feature a procession of sea life, creepy-crawlies and furry mammals. The centre hosts birthday parties and school trips for marine-mad munchkins, and has cemented its family-friendly credentials with a nomination for Best Visitor Attraction at the Scottish Thistle Awards 2014. An on-site cafe lets guests rest weary legs and quench hunger pangs with freshly-baked cakes, while the gift shop stocks an array of educational toys and mementos. Visitors after more than a stroll round the exhibits can get hands-on in seal, penguin and meerkat feeding sessions. The aquarium opens its door seven days a week.

VERY disappointed in this purchase and family outing. Had wed pay full price i wouldve requested a refund. It took us about an hour to get there, and less than 30mins to walk all of the exhibits. The animals were in awful conditions - penguin area hadnt been cleaned in ages. Pooh and urine coating the penguins coats and their water. Id swear the alligator/crocodile turtle was dead in the water. You walk down the stairs after checking in and thru the gift shop. The first area is maybe 6 aquariums of fish. From there you can go straight back to see 2 snakes and the penguins, or you can go down to see the meercats, shark/sting ray exhibit. After this you continue on to see another 4 aquariums of turtle and crocodiles and venture outside again to see the seals. The seals look bored and in a tiny area - but were quite receptive to seeing people. BEYOND disappointed in what was there, how it was presented and the conditions the animals were kept in.

Good Groupon value for money, quite a lot to see. Ideal for young children under 8. We enjoyed the penguin feed best.

Great family activity for the winter, and lovely to be able to pop in just for an hour or so, even after school. We have bought this winter pass for several years and the kids love it. great value.

It's very small, not a lot to see. We were in there an hour and that included seeing the penguins feeding. The groupon voucher was a fair price and it wasn't worth a penny more.

Whole place looking very tired and in need of full overhaul. Large section closed whilst we were there. Penguins and seals were in tiny enclosures and looked so sad. Meerkats in small, non stimulating environment. Whole interior of building was freezing. Only part that looked bright abs looked after was gift shop and cafe - presumably because they want you to spend money here!

Great place to take the kids and the winter pass is good value if you go two or three times. They pack a surprising amount into a small space and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
